Yes, it is great to use a backing as a less boring metronome, but not as replacement for it. The backing should be something that is easy to understand the timing so you know if you are playing in time or not. Also the backing and thing you play should sound good together or you will start training your ear to bad sounds. Plus if they sound good together, that is where the fun comes in.

As far as speed. Speed means nothing if it is not played right, so there is no "too SLow". Also I am learning the hard way that if you do play something very slow for long enough the speed comes natural. I wish some one told me that 20 years ago.
Rene, You inspire me to know that you are working so hard to learn. You are in the right place to do just that and you are going to have a great time doing so. Good luck to you.

Yes you are right - the on;y thing is that the backing track has to be the right speed for what you are working on. Its hard to increase the speed of a backing track to play faster, but it can be done with the right software. If you are training for speed you need that. Apart from that,. I find playing to a backing track a lot more fun but you can;t 100% replace a metronome.

Backing track is helpfull because your ear is listening to the music assosiated with your exercise end remebers it. You can hear the harmony behind your notes. This is why backing can be very helpfull. BUT practise everything very slowly with a click.
My advice is ti practise starting of whole notes on 60bpm and gradually build up to slower backing track tempo. Then practise a little with slower backing track. Then carry on until you reach the default tempo of the lesson. When you are comfortable enough playing the exercise - always play it with the backings later as you will develop your ear a little on the way.

i'm didn't wana increase speed over backing track i'm just wanna do something funy and feel more music rolleyes.gif

i'm was try this lesson https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/speed-alt...ing-lesson1.htm

that's exerisez on E minor/aeolian - scale suggestion for this lesson's backing track

the exersize from that video is on HI-E and B string.
the my problem is to put just the exersize to the backing track..take the right speed and timing...{i'm don't wanna train speed there}

probaly i'm must find my own way smile.gif
